Sharply done, often pleasing effort from the Salkind/Warner Bros. troupe. Much of a relief after the disastrous Superman III, Supergirl is Kal-El's cousin from the inner space community of ArgoCity. After a mistake goes awry within the peaceful walls of the city of Argo, Kara(Helen Slater, in probably her best performance.) must go to earth and retrieve the omegahedron, a power source that ArgoCity needs to live. Thus she is transformed to Supergirl-Women of Steel! What she does not understand at first, is that the magical source fell into the hands of the chaos hungry sorceress Selena, who proceeds to filch it, and take over the small town of Midvale, Il. It's up to Supergirl to save the day and return the omegahedron to ArgoCity where it belongs. Can she do it? State of the art special effects, especially the wire work, and FABulous acting boost this to be one of Hollywood's best efforts. Urbane settings and Mundane characters increase this. Jerry Goldsmith's beautiful and imaginative score is felicitous and strong. Like Superman/Superman II, the greats were hired to take this film flight: Faye Dunaway(Network), Peter O'Toole(Laurence of Arabia), Brenda Vaccaro(Midnight Cowboy-Once is Not Enough), Maureen Teefy(Fame), Mia Farrow(Rosemary's Baby), Peter Cook(Bedazzled), and of course, Helen Slater, turns in such good acting that one is right there in the front row shouting for her to win! win! win! All in all, an underrated film(After the Warner Bros. dropping it fiasco) and a true diamond in the blockbuster rough! ***** out of *****!
